Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

I don't know if anyone has been able to catch CC on CBS pregame, but he's pretty inciteful (sp).

He was on WP Live and was asked about the skins redzone problems, JC's problems fumbling, not being able to close out games and/or make the big play at the end.

He said he had talked to some teams that have played the skins who told him that JC really isn't the major problem. He is young and going to make mistakes but they noted the skins have only one redzone threat...Cooley. Well guess what..these teams know that. After that who else? His sources say JC really needs a big WR threat to become more effective.

CC was still high on JC as we all are..most of us are.

Anyways, I know most of us know this so its no secret that other teams do as well.

And our other threat (helps with blocking and makes things happen) has been injured (Sellers). We need to get this kid Mix in the mix.

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

Good post (btw, I believe it's spelled 'insightful' - thanks for noting that you weren't sure)

Like you said, no secret to us here & this week a couple threads have even discussed this. early in the year Cooley was making catches in the red zone a lot, had a few tds. Teams definitely have caught on.

Casserly's singing the same tune a lot of us have been around here.

We've got to have a big body who can leap at the WR spot.

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

I think this means getting McCardell and Caldwell open more down in the Red Zone. Both are capable targets that need to get the ball more in goal line situations.

The other take it that going heavy jumbo, Santana Moss is usually the 1 receiver that is in that set...perhaps replacing him with one of the above will help?

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

One way to deal with red zone problems is to score before you get in the red zone. They need to take more shots from between the 40s.

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

I really want to see this Mix dude.
If he is a bust then....well we did pay vertually nothing for him.lol.
I am curious to see him in action

That's an excellent point. When's the last time you saw them throw a bomb into the endzone from the 50?

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

I think Casserly makes a valid point. Cooley is our only true red zone threat. With the way teams key on him down there it's surprising that he has as many TDs as he does.

You can't fix this by saying... well just throw more bombs before you get to the red zone. That's really not addressing the issue.

They haven't done it enough which is a shame with the way the officials are handing out PI calls lately. The Cowboys are smart in this regard. They take a boatload of shots to the endzone from midfield. Now they have strong weapons to do it with, but he also threw one to Pasano against G.B, and he's not anybody's idea of a downfield threat so it's a philosophical thing for them as well. We, by contrast, seem to have completely gone away from the long ball, which is an indication to me that Saunders is basically having his way, despite what everyone says.

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

Sounds like we need some large receivers and/or a line that can bust open some massive holes for CP.

Didn't we have one of the best redzone offenses in the league early on in the season? Cooley seemed to be catching short TD passes right and left. Perhaps teams have figured that out and have just shut him down since we have no other viable threat.

I agree that we'll need to find another red zone threat. But would you agree that they should take more shots from outside the redzone, when the NFL through pass interference rules, is begging teams to do it?

Re: Charley Casserly's Take on the skins Redzone Problems

Of course I'd like to see us take more shots down the field, but with ARE being out and Moss not at 100% I think that's really hurt that area of the offense.

I only remember seeing McCardell in the lineup once this season in the red zone and he caught a TD. I like Thrash down there too but only on 1st and second down with Sellers, Yoder, Cooley and him on the field.

Moss seems like another player with his new shoes. Hopefully he'll connect a few times downfield Thursday.
